Are the Aging Stars of Major League Soccer Worth Their Paychecks?

Are the Aging Stars of Major League Soccer Worth Their Paychecks? | Futbal | Scoop.it
A flood of highly paid, past-their-prime European players are coming to the U.S., raising questions about whether their star power helps the American game or hurts it.
Sara Conrad's insight:

Football. "Aging stars" perhaps in Europe but not in the US of A where the likes of these oldsters have never been seen nor produced. 

Got that? I'm sticking by it. There has not been an American "soccer" player that matches up to the caliber of these imports EVER. EVER. The MLS "aims to rival the best leagues in the world by 2022"??? Better start spending now, because 7 years is going to go by really fast and you are so, so, so, so far behind.

I've been following and keeping up with world class football since 1987 and watched a lot of games. 

If the US ever comes close to being good enough to win the World Cup, I'll be the first to admit it, but mehhhhhh. Stick with your stupid US football where the players take breaks, play in covered stadiums, etc. Blech. Give me a stadium filled with O-ley-o-ley-o-leys and chants anyday.

This Italian Soccer Team Did the Most Beautiful Thing for a Woman Who Lost Her Husband and Son

This Italian Soccer Team Did the Most Beautiful Thing for a Woman Who Lost Her Husband and Son | Futbal | Scoop.it
Sara Conrad's insight:

I cried. What a thoughtful gesture from AS Roma. 

 

"As one Reddit commenter wrote, "Those eyes are of someone who has not stopped crying" (speaking of Luana). And I'd guess that assessment is right."

 

I love Totti. What a touching tribute to two of their fans.

Google Is Making It Easier to Keep Up With the World Cup

Google Is Making It Easier to Keep Up With the World Cup | Futbal | Scoop.it
Google tweaked its site to help users get instant World Cup updates.
Sara Conrad's insight:

Ole, Ole, Ole!!! Keep up with the World Cup wherever you are! Thanks Google. 

 

This family has been waiting 4 years for this. One is pessimistic, one is super nervous but thinks Germany can win, and one (me) is keeping her options open. I like to watch them play. Quarter finals could come down to Germany/Brazil....... 


The world stops and watches. Bring it on Brazil, the eyes of the world are on you. 


Joga Bonita, play on, players, play on.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic: 'Who the f--- is David Beckham?' | Futbal | Scoop.it
Ghostwriting an autobiography on Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not an easy business, as Swedish author David Lagercrantz discovered
Sara Conrad's insight:

Fierce. Must read. Especially after this, "I tried to find the literary Ibrahimovic." Seek out and watch the video of him dribbling his chewing gum. So much talent. Really, who the F* is Beckham? (never as good as Zlatan) 

He's so great.

Sara Conrad's insight:

Love this ad by #AKQA - as usual their futbal ads are spot on. Not a fan of V, but hey, just cause they laid me off and won't rehire me, or even interview me, that doesn't come into play at all.

Men’s Olympic Soccer Final Is Drawing Attention

The match between Brazil and Mexico is expected to bring crowds and fanfare usually reserved for the World Cup.

 

I've been waiting for this, my first time viewing the young Brazilian team. I'd really like a close match and it wouldn't break my heart if Mexico won either. I'd like them to have some glory!
